Just Because

 I've been eyeing these Wplus9 layered stamps for quite a while......they would go in and out of stock, so it's taken me this long to get them home.  Here's my first card.

supplies: white and Green Apple cardstock, Wplus9 Thinking of You layered flowers stamps, various Altenew mini ink cubes, stripe stencil, Simon Just Because die

Each flower or leaf has an outline, then several solid layers to add color to it.  Making a background like this was a good way to get to know them, and I chose colors to bring spring a little closer today.  When I was finished stamping them, I went back with green ink and a 3-dot stamp to fill in some of the white areas.  

I've always loved a mix of stripes and flowers, so next I stencilled some green stripes at the top and bottom of my card base, then trimmed the floral panel, lined the top and bottom edge with a green cardstock, then added it and my large sentiment to the stripes.

Hope you're having a good day.  Enjoy the weekend!
